Principal Investment Strategy
Under normal circumstances, the Trust invests at least 80% of the value of its assets in common stocks of enhanced quality companies, which are companies that exhibit an attractive blend of quality, valuation and price appreciation characteristics. When assessing quality, the Trust evaluates companies by looking for positive and improving profitability, earnings that are cash generative, declining leverage and improving liquidity. Utilizing a unique rule based strategy, the Trust invests in 16 top ranked securities in the Russell 1000 Index selected by the Sponsor, with the assistance of Guggenheim Partners Investment Management, LLC (“GPIM”), an affiliate of Guggenheim Partners, LLC. The Trust may invest in U.S.-listed companies, which include U.S.-listed foreign securities, and may invest in mid- and largecapitalization companies. The Trust may also invest in real estate investment Trusts.
The Trust’s portfolio was constructed and the securities were selected four business days prior to the initial date of deposit (the “Security Selection Date”) using the following security selection rules:
